The lieutenant governor of New Mexico said employees at the Freeport McMullen mine in New Mexico, the world's largest listed copper producer, had been confirmed. It is not clear whether the mine's operations have been affected. The mine, located near the southwestern border with Arizona, produced 175 million pounds of copper last year, making it the third largest North American mine in terms of production at Freeport McMullen.

Moreover, some blast furnace plants adjust the hot metal ratio to increase the use of scrap steel has also dragged down the demand for iron ore. In terms of plates, due to the spread of the epidemic overseas, the import and export of plates have been greatly affected, demand is low, prices may continue to fall.

Crude oil rose 3.68% in the previous period. The recent ups and downs of oil prices are mainly due to the fact that the timing of the crude oil meeting has not yet been determined. On the date, a senior Russian negotiator said Saudi Arabia and Russia were on the verge of agreeing on a production limit agreement aimed at reducing global oil oversupply, while sources in Moscow said Russia was ready to cut production sharply ahead of this week's talks. Given the sharp drop in demand as a result of the blockade measures to curb the spread of the new crown virus, the total production cuts proposed to date of 10 million barrels per day may not be sufficient to stabilize the global oil market. Mr Trump has said the deal between Saudi Arabia and Russia could cut production by the equivalent of 10-15 per cent of global supply.
